EVER

VERY morning mercies new

2 Still the greatness of Thy love

Fall as fresh as morning dew;
Every morning let us pay
Tribute with the early day;
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure;
Thy compassion doth endure.

Daily doth our sins remove;
Daily, far as east from west,
Lifts the burden from the breast;
Gives unbought to those who pray
Strength to stand in evil day.

3 Let our prayers each morn prevail,

That these gifts may never fail;
And, as we confess the sin
And the tempter's power within,
Every morning, for the strife,
Feed us with the bread of life.

4 As the morning light returns,

As the sun with splendor burns,
Teach us still to turn to Thee,
Ever-blessed Trinity,
With our hands our hearts to raise,
In unfailing prayer and praise.

Greville Phillimore, 1863: v. 1, line 1, 2, alt.

mer - ci-ful and might - y! God in three per-sons, bless-ed Trin - i - ty!

A- men.

HOLY, holy, holy, Lord God almighty!

Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessèd Trinity!

2 Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

3 Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4 Holy, holy, holy, Lord God almighty!

All Thy works shall praise Thy name, in earth and sky and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

Reginald Heber, 1783–1826

NOW, when the dusky shades of night, retreating

Before the sun's red banner, swiftly flee;
Now, when the terrors of the dark are fleeting,

O Lord, we lift our thankful hearts to Thee.
2 Look from the tower of heaven and send to cheer us

Thy light and truth, to guide us onward still;
Still let Thy mercy, as of old, be near us,

And lead us safely to Thy holy hill.
3 In vain to labor, unless Thou be with him,

Man goeth forth through all the weary day;
In vain his strife, in vain his toil unceasing,

Unless Thy staff bring comfort on his way.
4 Thou, who hast made the north and south, watch o'er us;

Thou, in whose name the lonely ones rejoice,
Still let Thy cloudy pillar glide before us,

Still let us listen for Thy warning voice.
5 So, when that morn of endless light is waking,

And shades of evil from its splendors flee,
Safe may we rise, the earth's dark breast forsaking,
Through all the long bright day to dwell with Thee.

Anon. Hedge and Huntington's Hymns, 1853
